Now hiring a Postdoc Fellow in the Translational Bioinformatics and Cancer Systems Biology Laboratory of Dr. Aik Choon Tan (tanlab.org ) at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute. We are looking for a talented, energetic and highly motivated individual to join our lab to "contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer"! This position will be involved in exciting cancer genomic projects. The research fellow will develop computational and statistical algorithms for the analysis and interpretation of cancer genomic datasets using next generation sequencing technology, and to develop computational tools for linking these vulnerabilities with therapeutics. The research fellow will have the opportunity to be trained by computational and experimental mentors, and will be supervised by Dr. Aik Choon Tan (firstname.lastname@example.org). He/she will have the opportunity to collaborate with cutting-edge oncology research groups at the Moffitt Cancer Center and work on translational research projects.
The successful applicant will have completed (or be close to completing) a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in an applied quantitative discipline. This includes, but is not limited to, Computer Science, Informatics, Biostatistics, Population/Evolutionary Genomics, or Applied Mathematics. The applicant should have a strong interest in either basic or translational research. A track record of applying computational and/or statistical models to solve biological problems is desired. Previous experience in common programming languages is needed (e.g., R, Python, C, Java). Candidates with less than three years of postdoctoral training are preferred. Preference will be given to applicants with strong evidence of productivity, creativity, and self-motivation. A track record of conference poster and/or oral presentations, and first author peer-reviewed publications, is expected.
Interested applicants should attach send a PDF that includes a current CV with recent publications, a personal statement of scientific interests and goals (2-page maximum), and contact information for three references to Dr. Aik Choon Tan at email@example.com.
